FlowLiner®

The FlowLiner® is a special fog device designed for emitting very powerful fog thread inside wind tunnels, where air velocity is much higher.

Since the generated fog has to be outlet at the tip of the lance of the FlowLiner® and shall not condense inside it, the lance is heated. Therefore, due to operational safety, a special insulation around the lance is mounted in order to prevent that a user get burned when touching the lance.

The strong fog thread of the FlowLiner® can be used for stream velocities of 5m/s to 60 m/s. The length of the lance can be chosen according to customer’s demands within a range of 0.25 m to 1.01 m.

The flow visualization can be made either by fog generators, like the FlowLiner or the FlowMultiLiner, or with numerical calculations.

For example, the flow around an aerofoil in a wind tunnel at the Technische Hochschule Nürnberg was calculated with CFD and compared to reality afterwards.
